Simply Build It

There's normally a thermocouple on the cookers or some type of safety device.

Check and clean first as fat and grease can sometimes block the burner or stop the device working correctly.

If no luck, I would suggest getting the Thermocouple changed. You don't have to undo any gas connections, and they are simple to fit
(unlike a boiler, where you normally have to brek a gas connection, and a CORGI registered engineer should be used).

You can't really go wrong - if not fitted correctly it will not sense the flame and will not let the main burner light.
